Food Review: Loks Bar & Kitchen, 16 Newlandsfield Rd, Glasgow G43 2XU

Steak sandwich Loks bar and kitchen Newlands Shawlands Glasgow

Loks Bar and Kitchen is located in the old Pollok Juniors Social Club ground at Newlandsfield, just along from Morrisons and just off Kilmarnock Road in the Newlands / Audlhouse area.

We’ve been watching Loks Bar & Kitchen come to life, seeing the huge amount of work that has went into it, transforming it from stale social club to craft beer restaurant with a real fire.

Mrs Foodie and Mr C went along for a bit of lunch and a quick nosey.  We were greeted as soon as we entered by a friendly member of staff who even offered us a quick tour.  Always up for a snoop, we said yes.  Mrs Foodie had never been in before but Mr C had and he was very impressed with the conversion.

After  a peek at the bar and function room, it was time for food!

Loks Bar & Kitchen Light Bites Menu

We decided on something from the light bites menu, Mrs Foodie went for  the Hake and Mr C for the steak ciabatta.

Whilst waiting we had an wee look about the restaurant.

Cosy booth

We nabbed ourselves one of the booths – there’s a good array of seating for different groupings being it couples, pals or for a working lunch.

The glazed area lets in a good amount of light.

We didn’t have long to wait for our meals.

First off Hake with mash and tomato salsa, £6.25

Hake and mash

Buttery and smooth mash, Mrs Foodie is a big grinch with regards to mash, being brought up in a Scottish home of lumpy mash – this was delicious.  The hake was moist, tender and peeled away in bite sized chunks.  Mrs Foodie liked the salsa addition, but a wee bit too much balsamic.

If we were impressed by the hake, we truly loved the steak ciabatta at £6.75.

Impressive steak sandwich

A good amount of meat chargrilled to our order with sweet caramelised onions.  We didn’t need the chips that we had ordered – one to remember for next time. Now Mr C can talk the hind legs off a donkey but this dish kept him quiet!

We were too full for pudding, we were both eyeing up the Tipsy Laird, but that’s the perfect excuse to come back…

With a coffee to finish, two soft drinks and lunch coming in at £20.75, we were impressed.
